Mother's Day

I feel so overwhelmed today.  I remember sitting in church on Mother's Day 4 years ago and crying, wishing for nothing more than a screaming, pooping, baby! My heart ached to be a mother.  Today, 4 years later, I sat in church filled with joy for the beautiful babies I have in my life.  I watched Remee sit quietly, folding her arms and closing her eyes, while the prayers where said, and my heart melted.  I peeked in Jade's car seat to see a silent sleeping angel, and again, my heart melted.  I feel so much gratitude for these children Heavenly Father has blessed me with.  They teach me everyday to have patience.  They have taught me that love really can grow and grow!  So, today the tears I have are not from sadness because I want a baby, but for joy because I have my babies. 
I am overwhelmed with love for my own mothers today!  I have three amazing mothers.  My mom, Leesa, who has taught me everything from being a patient, loving person, to being a great housekeeper and cook.  I love you so very much marmy!  My mom, Dovey, who has taught me to be optimistic in times of trial.  I feel so blessed my daddy found such a wonderful woman!  My mom, Sheri, who raised an amazing man to stand by my side!  You have taught me to find joy in my family and to endure!  I am blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law. 
My heart is full when I think about all the mothers I know who have taught me, by example, to love my children unconditionally.  I watch you all and take mental notes on how I can be more like you! 
I am blessed to be a mother and to have wonderful mothers in my life! Happy Mother's Day!
